Elliott took a helmet-to-helmet hit early on and after missing a 34-yard field goal, was examined for a concussion. The rookie was later ruled out for the rest of the game.
Doug Pederson reportedly told the SNF crew that to combat this, they will be more aggressive on fourth down and 2-pt conversions. Their backup kicker is linebacker and special teams ace Kamu Grugier-Hill, so be prepared to see plenty of aggressive play-calls in the second half.
